Native Plant Dyeing
Discover nature’s hidden sources of colour using millennia-old eco dyeing techniques.
If you have always wanted to try your hand at bush dyeing then this is the class for you. Indigenous peoples have been carrying out the practice of eco dyeing for thousands of years and passing on this knowledge, and our trainer, proud Darug and Wiradjuri First Nations person Kylie, continues this tradition.
This eco dyeing workshop will provide you with:
- Connection to the natural environment
- Sustainable practices through the use of traditional dyeing methods using natural and found objects
- Experimentation through swatches of fabric using different plant materials, including readily available native plants like eucalyptus and food waste such as onion skins
- The opportunity to dye a garment of your choice using provided organic unbleached calico bags or your own material if preferred
